September 6, 2011 with Scott Allen [Cassette Archives]

I’ve known Scott Allen since he was just a kid, and even at a young age it was clear he had an intuitive musicality. He’s been in many notable bands throughout the years, and he’s obsessed with Harry Nilsson. This night Scott played a rare solo acoustic set, which you can listen to below, and he showed everyone that it’s okay to squeeze out some tears with some heartfelt ballads on the turntables.
